Chinese Medicine & Cancer Prevention Tai Lahans, MTCM, Med, Lac

This session will ground the modern concepts of cancer pathology within the theoretical framework of cancer pathology in Chinese medicine. These modern concepts include diet and nutrition, exercise and its benefits, and happiness in all of its expressions. These modern concepts of known preventative measures that can help reduce risk for cancers fall into several classical functional axes of Chinese medicine. Knowing these interconnected relationships between classical and modern medical forms and developing language by which this relationship can be shared with patients is immensely valuable in helping people work within themselves to prevent a diagnosis of cancer.
